The long days of summer are here with all their heat and stickiness. I know they'll arrive every year, but they always take me by surprise. It never seems like it'd be able to get quite this muggy when the sun sets at 4:30 at the height of winter. I love the long days now. They last for such a short duration of the year that I never quite adjust. I'm always surprised when I watch the sunset, then look at my watch and realize it's 9:30 and I haven't had a bite to eat in hours. Though that might also have something to do with all the margaritas and dark-and-stormys I've been drinking. You know, summer drinks.
